The Golden Triangle region in northwest British Columbia has been a focus of mineral exploration and mining activity for over 150 years. Early discoveries included significant gold, silver, copper, zinc, lead and molybdenum deposits throughout the region. Today, a rise in commodity prices and improvements in infrastructure have made the Golden Triangle one of the hottest mineral exploration districts in the world.

Discover New Prospects in the Golden Triangle

For over 150 years, countless prospectors have been attracted to British Columbia’s Golden Triangle by the lure of rich geological terrain encompassing potentially billions of dollars in gold, silver and copper deposits. This once remote region, which covers an area roughly twice the size of Wales, is now accessible thanks to a series of recent infrastructure investments. With renowned geology and proven projects, excellent infrastructure, engaged and supportive Indigenous partners and a regulatory framework that is robust and reliable, the Golden Triangle is uniquely positioned for growth.

  • Modern-day Gold Rush supported by:
    • Higher gold prices, the discovery of high-grade deposits and two new mines.
    • New infrastructure including highway upgrades, ocean port facilities and a $700M transmission line.
    • Meaningful Indigenous partnerships.
  • Estimated $365.9M of exploration expenditures incurred in the Northwest throughout 2021—a $140M increase over 2020 ($225.3M).
  • Approximately 41 active companies in the region as well as projects that have Environmental Assessment certificates but require investment to advance to production.
